Not sure I can answer your question, I don't know what a "far right whackjob is?

Does it have anything to do with sex?

The problem starts when the illegal aliens enter our country illegally, no matter what their reason. They're about to repossess my home, should I just go down to the bank and take the money by force to pay itNo,because its against the law.
But you conveneintly forgot to mention that it is against the law to hire illegals..why is that?

Simple, because if the illegal aliens stay in their own country and not ours there wouldn't be any problems

Not obviously at all, just another liberal lie, to protect the most violent savages and thugs in our society.,
Don't get me wrong, I fully 100% enthusiatically support the death penalty. In fact I think its use should be EXPANDED to start emptying out our overcrowded prisons.

My only point was it obviously is NOT a deterrent for others contemplating murder.

That would be Hispanic Americans,thank you for making my point.
I never claimed otherwise.

My only issue was your assumption that because they're hispanic they all support illegals.

State sponsored murder? you realize like 90% of the people in proson are there for drug charges...so killing people for using drugs is your answer?

Are you sure they're not counting the 11 million illegal aliens in the census total?
Even it that includes the illegals, that's still 39 million hispanic US citizens who will be targeted for harassment & discrimination simply because of their ancestry.

I won't tolerate that for ethnic Germans or Italians or Chinese or Indians or Kenyans or any other group of American citizens.

I simply won't.

RACISIM AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

So what?

I can provide just as inflammatory quotes from bigots on the other side.

In fact there are many such comments made on this very thread.

STOP judging an entire class of people based on the actions of a few. THAT is what makes it prejudice & bigotry.

There's 6.6 million "BROWN" Mexican illegal aliens in our country.
When we had 6.6 million "White" illegal aliens in our country let me know.
The Hispanic Americans could solve the problem by calling I.C.E on the illegal aliens they know.
Till then they need to stop whining!
No, they don't. And tens of millions of white & black & brown Americans will support our fellow citizens regardless of their skin color.

When you attack one citizen because of their race/ethnicity etc, then you attack all of us.

Sobriety Checkpoint Laws
February 2013
Sobriety checkpoints (also called DUI checkpoints) are locations where law enforcment officers are stationed to check drivers for signs of intoxication and impairment. Many jurisdictions utilize sobriety checkpoints as part of their larger drunk driving deterrance program.
Due to legal issues surrounding their use, not all states conduct sobriety checkpoints. Some states have laws authorizing their use. Others forbid them or are silent on the issue.

States with no explicit statutory authority may or may not conduct checkpoints. In many states, the judiciary has stepped in to uphold or restrict sobriety checkpoints based on interpretation of state or federal Constitutions.
38 states, the District of Columbia, the Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands conduct sobriety checkpoints.
In 12 states, sobriety checkpoints are not conducted. Some states prohibit them by state law or Constitution (or interpretation of state law or Constitution). Texas prohibits them based on the its interpretation of the U.S. Constitution.
http://www.ghsa.org/html/stateinfo/laws/check...
Exactly, there is disagreement on the constitutionality of those checkpoints.

While I don't want to live in a police state, I can accept checkpoints when they are related to a public safety issue such as drunk driving; as long as EVERYONE is checked and EVERYONE is treated the same if they are found to be intoxicated.

Same applies for "papers please" citizenship checks. I don't support them because I don't want to live in a police state, but I can accept the IF EVERYONE is checked and EVERYONE has to provide the exact same level of proof of citizenship (i.e. certified long form birth certificate, US passport, or enhanced drivers license) and if EVERYONE who fails to have the appropriate document on their person is treated the same (i.e. taken into custody) REGARDLESS of their race or ethnicity.

So a New Mexico State Trooper stops a van with 20 Browning looking people packed in it and no one speaks broken English except the driver who has a Mexican drivers license.
???
Depends on WHY he stopped the van. Did they commit a moving violation or were their license tags expired or was their an obvious safety issue?

The trooper has to have probable cause to stop the van in the first place. Seeing a bunch of "brown people" is NOT probable cause.

Assuming he had probable cause to stop the van, then he can rightfully ask for the driver's license, registration, and insurance information. If the driver has a "mexican driver's license" and the van is packed with 20 people, then that would most likely meet the standard of probable cause.

The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (42 U.S.C. 1395dd,
EMTALA) is a United States Act of Congress passed in 1986 as part of the
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act. It requires hospitals and
ambulance services to provide care to anyone needing emergency treatment
regardless of citizenship, legal status or ability to pay.
Freedom of speech means anyone can burn or stomp on a US flag in protest. If you have a problem with the 1st amendment, then start a petition to change it.

Only a moron would want EMTs & ERs having to verify citizenship and/or ability to pay before providing emergency care.
